Kochikame – The legendary anime/manga Kochikame also known as Kochira Katsushikaku Kameari Kouenmae Hashutsujo, is getting new TV Anime project to celebrate its 40th anniversary. I remember when i was kid i used to watch this Anime on TV in my native language which is “Hindi” widely spoken in India. I fell in love with this Anime but out of 373 episodes only 70 were dubbed and sadly i never got to watch the Kochikame Anime because the episodes were missing and the situation has not changed even now!
Ryotsu, being an underpayed policeman, is always coming up with ways to make some quick money. But in the end, his plans which are ridiculous from the beginning always go wrong and land him in big trouble with the Buchou.

Kochikame new TV Anime Project
This year’s 29th issue of Shueisha’s weekly shounen jump magazine is revealing on Monday that Kochi9kame also known as Kochira Katsushikaku Kameari Kouenmae Hashutsujo is getting an new TV Anime project as a celebration of the 40th anniversary of Manga. The Magazine will also reveal a new visual for the Anime project.
The Manga is written and illustrated by Akimoto Osamu and inspired TV Anime and specials from 1985 to 2008. Although it is still not confirmed that the new TV Anime project will be a Special, OVA or a new Anime series or a Movie but it is expected that we will get more details on this coming Monday.
In addition to the new TV Anime project Kochikame is also getting a new stage play for the celebration of its 40th anniversary. Lazar Ishii, who played Kankichi Ryōtsu in the previous anime adaptations, and in earlier stage play adaptations, will also play the role in this new play.
This really got me pumped up as the Anime episodes are not available on the internet, but with this new project we will soon get to see the crazy adventures of Kankichi Ryotysu. So i am really looking forward to this Anime.
